    That is a beautiful set! And the belt is still on it! Excellent find.

    Thanks, Steve, Thanks Thom,

    I believe this is an earlier version without the orange inner panels.  No sign of any having been.

    These don't come up often.  It actually found me.  
    Certainly not mint, but in good condition. Colors are still good .
    It came with one epaulette which will be split into two. They are always missing, but one is better than 0.  Also located a hood... Very Happy  
     Scratch one more HG.

    Nice set!

    I'm beginning to think I'm the only Spanish collector that doesn't have one of these Smile

    Unfortunately not mine (at the moment)... it's from a friend that want to sell me it, but the cost far exceeds my budget... Sad
    He has also the m1 helmet cover.

    Found an New Old Stock hood for this uniform. Amazing how the colors remain strong when compared to NOS hood . I was also able to split one epaulette to create 2 .

    Excellent piece! This version without the interior in orange is hard to see in such good condition. These were the ones used in the jumps in Western Sahara. Whatever the condition, M-62s are rare birds to see, hard to find and not cheap when you come across one.. even here on the Peninsula. So congratulations, you have an incomparable collection.

    Thank you.  

    Early Spanish patterns were my introduction into the world of camo; they remain my very favorite..

    Still need a few more pieces before I can consider it done ..

    This jump smock also seems to have came with one epaulette. Looks like it was cut in half and sown onto the loop. Good job, whomever did it; a much simpler way of doing it than the way I did .
